Hello, I'm considering the purchase of a rMacBook for my specific needs. I need a MacBook for personal use. My primary usage will be: 1. Processing my 21 megapixel DSLR RAW images using Lightroom (I have a huge backlog and I want to go through approximately 500 pictures per day, of which I may end up processing 50-70 photos and exporting as jpeg) Clarification: I need to 'browse' through around 500 RAW photos per day. Of these, I will select around 50-60 photos for processing and exporting as jpeg. Once I'm through my backlog, I'll process around 200 photos per week. 2. Writing my daily journal / travel experience (on that note, I'd appreciate a recommendation on some good MacBook Apps) 3. Web surfing 4. Occasional movie watching 5. Very infrequently playing lightweight games I currently have a 3 year old i7 Toshiba laptop that is somewhat slow with Lightroom 4. I barely use it except for watching movies. I'm now considering an Adobe CC subscription. Clarification: the reason I don't use this laptop as much is because it's heavy and large. one of my key reasons for considering the rMB is that it is thin and light and so, I'll actually use and not continue to add to the backlog. I like to sit on the sofa and process my pictures while watching TV or surfing the web. This is my way of un-winding after a hard day of work. I digress. I currently have an iPad Mini 2 that I absolutely love and use for web surfing, occasional YouTube videos, and lightweight gaming apps. Oh, and one last thing, I'm expecting a significant amount of travel (for work and recreation) for the next year or so, starting very shortly. And so, an iMac or MBP 15 will be impractical for my purposes. Based on the above what would you recommend from your own experiences? Thanks in advance for your replies.
